    Excellent as usual, Dave.

    Is that in addition to the 2 trains a day DRS already run for them? If it is, i wouldn't be surprised if extra locos were needed. Surprised that it's 47s though, I'd have thought 66s would have been more suitable. Unless of course the 47s will be displacing 66s off other duties....

    The exsisting J G RUSSEL services don't come out of Donnington, the 5 trains a day are brand new flows, not sure why it's 47s but 47s is the word (well, number ;))

    Cheers for the comments :)

    You've gotta feel sorry for the driver in charge of getting that up North! Not a job I'd want to do, fair play!

    Like the shots of the Lancs Links locos and the NR test train, DBSOs on test trains just seem so weird to me still!

    Evening all,

    Updated my site with photos of 31285 shoving some coaches on 1Z12 again, 175110, 57315 on the Holydiff, 170633, and 82305 at Shrewsbury.

    They have all been uploaded to my December collection: http://daviddawson.fotopic.net/c1619076.html

    Comments are, as always, most welcome :)
    Kind Regards
    Dave

    Not just Shrewsbury, but Arriva land. It's nice and unique. ;)

    So 008 has been repainted?:(

    I like the livery, it should have been the one ATW continued the rest of the 175s with IMO.

    Merr, shows how much I keep up to date with this stuff!

    So she really, really is unique then. Best got a phot of her when I'm next out before she gets painted.

    Gonna look out for her next week when I'm on the rails again then! I've probably got a few phots of her already, but none particularly beasty.
